Beauty Contest Caper is the first part of the fourth episode of The Scooby & Scrappy Doo Puppy Hour.


When contestants turn up missing at the Miss Earth Beauty Contest, the Fearless Detective Agency is hired, and Shaggy goes undercover as Miss Antartica to find out what happened.


The gang is closing Uncle Fearless's for lunch, when Ms Earth Beauty Pageant contestant Ms. Bulgravia (dressed only in a bathing suit) enters and tells them of the disappearances of the other contestants by some "big huge awful thing". Scrappy accepts the case.

To get Shaggy into the contest, he is disguised as "Ms Antarctica" (he chooses to be a redhead over a blonde). Backstage, he is quickly snatched by the creature ("I'm no girl; girls don't have beards!") Scrappy and Scooby go after them, and they all slide down the laundry chute. Scooby and Scrappy land in a sink and see Shaggy and all of the contestants in cages.

Scrappy pours detergent into the sink, sending Scooby floating up on a bubble to free Shaggy. They hide under a food cart, and trap the creature in an elevator. Ms Bulgravia appears saying "I didn't think you meddlers could do it", frees the creature (Bruno) and sends him after them, revealing that she is trying to win the reward for herself.

Shaggy and Scooby ride on stage lights, and finally lasso both Bruno and Ms Bulgravia, just as she was about to be crowned Ms Earth. Scrappy messes the both of them up with makeup ("That takes care of beauty and the beast") The gang is rewarded with kisses from all of the contestants.
